KONGOS score first U.S. #1 at Alternative Radio

April 1, 2014

Epic Records rising rock stars KONGOS score their first ever U.S. #1 on the alternative radio airplay charts with hit single “Come With Me Now.” The four Arizona-based brothers (by way of London and South Africa) also make history with the quickest ascent to the top spot by a new band, reaching #1 in just 10 weeks. They recently tied Lorde as the fastest Top 10 charting debut single at the format, matching her 5 week leap into the top 10 with “Royals.” “Come With Me Now” is the first single from KONGOS album Lunatic which is out now.
